Catalyst Game Labs posts Shadowrun: Crossfire overview

Catalyst Game Labs put up a little overview of Shadowrun: Crossfire, their upcoming deck-building game.

From the post:

Danger lurks behind every card in the Shadowrun: Crossfire adventure deck-building game. You and up to three friends can take on the darkest allies and most powerful corporations of the 2070s as you make a run through the shadows. You’ll improve your character as you play by buying Hacking, Spell, Weapon, and Skill cards from the Black Market to add to your deck. Each turn you’ll use some of these cards to overcome a variety of obstacles to your mission and threats to your lives. You will also have to contend with the dreaded Crossfire deck. Every round a new Crossfire event will throw you a curveball, you know, just to keep things interesting. You might have a Reversal of Fortune, encounter an Astral Surge, juggle a Grenade! or have to deal with the enemy’s Hardened Defenses. Each time you play you can choose from one of three missions contained in the box, each more difficult than the last. You can cut your teeth on Caught in the Crossfire, gain experience running an Extraction, and finally you might have to Deal with a Dragon. But don’t worry, it’ll be easy . . . Trust me!

    This looks quite interesting. Like many, I was concerned that this game would not have mechanic different enough from other deck-builders to justify my purchasing it. After reading about the three different event decks and about receiving karma points even for failed missions, this would appear to be something fresh. I look forward to more previews…and for that matter, a release date.

  • I’m really looking forward to it as well, remembering my RPG days.
